The Floating Brothel

  • Three women uncover the rags-to-respectability tale of their ancestors - the feisty convicts who became the unlikely founding mothers of modern Australia.
    This is the rip-roaring tale of The Lady Juliana and the boatload of street-girls, thieves and con-women who sailed to the end of the earth to breathe life into a dying colony.
